On the last two days of Activity Week 2, Year 9 enjoyed a variety of activities in Science. Their first challenge was to build a paper rocket that could be launched by a pressurised vessel. The students had to design the rocket, and consider the launch angle. Many of the teams managed to fire their rockets beyond the 50 metre mark. Secondly, the students undertook a construction challenge to build a structure with sellotape and 10 sticks of dired spaghetti. The structures had to be capable of supporting a marshmallow. Reptile Evenet provided the final activity of the day, when the classes were given the opportunity to hear a fascinating talk on reptiles and snakes, before being given the opportunity to handle some of the reptiles for themselves. An excellent way to round of Activity Week 2.
